I have been on lexapro 10mg for 7 months for anxiety, panic and depression, in the last few days my anxiety just up and started again for no reason, everything in my life is great (besides my two kids driving up the wall) any ideas on this, if it's normal? I've asked my doc if I need a dose increase, haven't heard back yet. Just wanted to see your thoughts. It's very out of the blue... Things were going well.
Anxiety tends to require a higher dose than the standard 10mg. 10mg is more suited for moderate depression. I had post natal depression/anxiety however the anxiety was worse so although I started off with 10mg, my dr very quickly realised that 15mg would be more suited more for the anxiety part. Within a week of upping my dose, the change was amazing! Definitely look to up your dose to 15mg.
